It’s okay to set down those heavy expectations and embrace more grace. Let go of striving and take hold of knowing you’re already beloved. Speak to yourself like you would a friend. You’re doing better than you know. You will get through this. You are already loved.
What you have to give today is enough because you serve the Jesus who turned loaves and fish into more than enough for a crowd. He will supply. He will multiply. Your role is not to produce, it is to surrender. Open your hands, open your heart, let things be.
Search for joy, cry when you need to, choose to be fully alive. God said His name is “I am” so the place you will find Him is not in some perfect future. It is in this imperfect present moment.
Deep breath. Whisper a prayer. One small step. You’ve got this.
